What a pleasant change to be welcomed and served by two young staff. Esmay and Conner looked after the drinks and food order. Great service and real Ale. The Ale was well cared for and crystal clear. A great place to meet friends and dine. All the best to the Landlord and Lady.

Had an evening meal here, the food was what I call Pub Grub not in my opinion anything more. It was tasty and well cooked. The wine list is OK but limited.

Popped in for a quick lunch whilst out with the dogs Terrific venue, nice atmosphere and friendly bar maid Food average - fish and chips OK but roast turkey was dry and chewy Sprouts over done Nice gravy and Yorkshire

Popular with locals with a good selection of real ales and interesting specials - the main menu was a little boring. The trio of local crab is recommended, although a crab cracker to get the crab meat out of the claws would have been helpful. Jazz night when we visited (Monday) added atmosphere.

We visit Teignmouth quite often and it's been a few years since we last visited Ye Old Jolly Sailor. We'd decided to pop in there when the river beach festival was on for a bite to eat a lunchtime. We were pleasantly surprised by the choice on offer on the menu. Once I saw that they offer fish fingers sandwiches... More

We live in Teignmouth and can therefore say with conviction there are not a lot of pubs you can eat in and quite a few you wouldn't want to drink in either, I certainly can't think where the "Gastro pubs" are. The Jolly Sailor is an exception, the food is fantastic, it's reasonably priced and the bar staff are friendly.... More

This charming pub serves local fresh food with a great selection for all of the family at good prices. The food was of a great quality and tasted great, especially the fish fingers! Most importantly the atmosphere and ambience of the pub is brilliant, very quaint but buzzing! Would definitely reccomend to anyone staying in South Devon!
